anybody emigrate. Haven't you watched Superman?
Plato places Atlantis just outside of the pillars of
Hercules. There's no
telling how much of Canaria already disappeared
The Canarian prehispanic aborigines were the Guanches, a
people, as far as I know, belonging to the same group that the Berbers
(Amazighen) who spread all over the Magrib, reaching as far as Egipt.
Indeed, if I'm not wrong or misread, the ancient Egiptian language is thought to
be related to the tamazigh (Berber) language, or at least to be part of the same
linguistic group (was it Camitic?)
Then we have all that mythological Egiptian stuff about
Osiris, the World turning over, and the return to the Western lands etc.
and, of course, all the archaelogical evidences stating migrations from the
Atlantic Coast Eastwards to Egipt.
BUT, on the other hand, we have
serious reasons to think that the upper dominant classes (the Pharao
and the religious cast) in ancient Egipt DID NOT belong to the same group
that the population because, once the great pyramides times passed, as we all
know, all of a sudden the Egiptian civilization seems to become merely a shade
of what it was: no more pyramides, no more "Egiptian Stuff".
Looks like the Pharao (remember, Osiris was
literaly the first one and came from the West, blah, blah) and adlaters were
part of a people from a very advanced civilization, but few in number, who
arrived to a natural privileged area (the Nile valley) after running away
first from we dont know exactly what, and later from the progressive
desertification of the Sahara, and tried to reproduce what their homeland was,
or at least, took advantage of their superiority to rule over the native
paleolitic people, but keeping themselves away from the natives in a
hermetic close and holding all the techonlogical knowledge to mantain their
dominion over the natives, becoming living gods, probably impelled by their will
to stay pure and to keep their ethnic lines alive, an actitude which finally
lead them, their knowledge and their civilization to extinction. After that,
only remains the religious cast, probably natives instructed merely like parrots
repeating things that they didnt actually understand, so the original
civilization becomes a shade of the original and finally gets assimilated by
So we face a contradiction, which may lead us to
think that Atlantis was NOT in the Canarian Islands.
Besides, we have the Aztec
